Health benefits and risks of Marmalades
Marmalades had a revolutionary role in 18th century. You’ll be surprised, but the first marmalade was made as a medicinal substance. British Navy was suffering from scurvy, because of the lack of Vitamin C. Many people were dying. The causes of the disease were dyspnea (shortness of breath), pain in bones, deterioration of digestion system, loss of hair and teeth. So, that’s how the first marmalade was made, which solved the problem of Vitamin C and was easy to keep on the boat.
